For those of you who don’t know me, my name is David Hobbs. I’m the owner of Warriors of the Cucumber Software, which is a small independent studio based in Milton Keynes in the UK.
I’ve wanted to write games ever since I was a small child growing up in the era of 8 bit home computers like the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64. I didn’t even have a computer when I started to learn to code, just a book from the library, a pen and some paper.
I had my first games published in 1991, for the Commodore Amiga. These were written in AMOS, a variant on BASIC written by Francois Lionet. (If anyone is interested, Francois is currently developing a spiritual successor to AMOS, called AOZ Studio, see >here< for more information)
My biggest success to date came when I published Best Night Light on Android. It had a slow start but now, five years later, has reached almost half a million downloads!
I am a fairly active member (when time allows, lol) in a few Facebook Indie Dev groups, and on various forums and discords. I’m also involved in local game dev events such as the MK:GameDev Meetup, a friendly gathering of both professionals, amateurs and beginners talking about all aspects of game dev over a few drinks.
If there’s anything else you’d like to know, then feel free to drop me an email or a message on social media and ask 🙂
